Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Fortunate Timing

--by kat94, posted Jun 28, 2022
Yesterday my dad's truck broke down. He knew it was coming but didn't think it would be this soon. It's at the mechanic and he'll get it back tomorrow.

He wasn't too happy as he needs it for work, but today there was a bit of a twist. We had a sudden severe thunder/hail/wind storm this afternoon. It caused a big branch from his tree to fall right on his driveway.

Right where his truck would have been. If his truck wasn't at the mechanic at that moment, it would be beyond repair after the storm. Everything truly does happen for one reason or another.

After the storm, I helped my dad and some of the older neighbours to clear their branches. The neighbourhood was a mess!
